Jimmy Buffett gives his signature greeting fans at the opening of his concert in Hermosa Beach.
Land sharks took over Hermosa Beach Saturday night.

Rumors began Friday morning Buffett perform a free concert on the beach in Hermosa Beach. For once, the rumors were true. The legendary Margaritaville mogul appeared on a stage resembling the mouth of a shark, barefoot and wearing shorts canary yellow at 6 pm and made a solid, one-hour concert.

“Said the Discovery Channel, ‘Hey, Jimmy, will you play Shark Week?” Buffett told the crowd. “And I said, ‘Duh!'”

Buffett was an obvious choice to help promote Discovery Channel’s Shark Week for their 1979 hit “Fins.” Sharks and shark fins are high on the clothing and accessories parrothead, although the song Male Sharks land referred…

“We try to keep secret because Buffett wanted people loyal to the free show to benefit the beach,” said Laurie Goldberg, Senior Vice President of Public Relations for Discovery Communications.

But I secretly filtering Friday morning and reported on KLOS radio, as well as parrothead websites, Facebook and Twitter.

Robert Winthrop Woodland Hills brought his six year old twins Tyler and Jessica to the show early so they could get closer to the stage. It was the first concert of children Buffett 55th and Winthrop.

Ricki and Joe Russell, a young couple from Marina Del Rey, also came to the front of the stage. Joe has been to 35 shows Buffett and his wife’s wedding band 11 Joe has “fins up” engraved inside.

The Parrot Head Club Los Angeles was also represented. The club is 15 and has 175 members. They hold a monthly meeting called a “congregation,” and it so happened to be scheduled for Saturday. After hearing rumors of the Beautiful are the group canceled its meeting for the concert.

“I’ve been to 20 shows,” said Kris Salter of Canyon Country. “I am very excited at this time.”

Buffett Margaritaville and Coral Reefer Band took the stage shortly after 6 pm and ignited a public and encouraged.

“Whoa, land sharks,” Buffett said, his hands clasped over his head like a shark fin. His fans waved back. “Welcome to Fin Fest.’s Great to be in the neighborhood.”


The musician of 67 years seemed no less lively than in his younger days. He jumped, danced and joked in a set of 12 songs that includes “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes”, “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “Fins” and, of course, “Margaritaville”.


Police estimated 12,000 fans gathered in front of the stage Shark.

Hermosa Beach police officer Dave Jones said he knew of only one incident involving an intoxicated person had to be removed from the beach. “And that was because he was falling on people,” said Jones official.

“Everyone is very happy,” Goldberg said during the performance. “And no one is paying for anything unless you want to buy a shirt.”

Buffett’s concert was part of a FinFest-long weekend at Pier Square organized by the Discovery Channel programming to promote Shark Week, which runs August 10 to August 15.



Concert Review: Jimmy Buffett Douses Fans With Familiar Songs, Atlanta Tales

The beach balls thrown into the crowd. The leis. The adult beverages consumed in parking areas – yes, even at Chastain.

Over forty years in a career and none of those changes.

And that’s exactly how Parrotheads like.

In his first concert at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in 27 years, Jimmy Buffett jumped on stage with his traditional uniform of shorts and flips flops pastel and immediately burst into “Summertime Blues” with his band of nine musicians and two singers.

By the second song, a steel drum cover of Van Morrison turning “Brown-Eyed Girl”, took off his shoes and appeared almost empty crowd up to sing.

The fact is that Buffett could be up there reciting the Gettysburg and while fans could use a foam fin on his head, who had happily recite along with it.

Their catalog consists of simple songs (“Changes in Latitude” is light Caribbean paint by numbers and explains itself “Too Drunk to Karaoke” is cheerfully brainless) and Buffett has always been a flat nasal singer upside down, in his later years, to talk-singing the songs live.

But he is committed to a lifestyle that gives fans a couple of hours of escapism and although his style is not for everyone, posing with a warm smile and many, many stories.

“Why not?” Buffett’s reasoning was to return to Chastain after nearly three decades, and the same could be said of those who spent over $ 250 for the best seats in the amphitheater. For many, a Buffett show is an annual ritual, and if the foot-tapping along to “Volcano” and the jaunty clip-clopping “One Particular Harbour” makes them happy … so be it.

Although Buffett extensive chatting between songs was endearing to a point – and he personalizes his jokes to stories of Atlanta-specific – which also led to an energy level even keel can never increase due to continuous breaks.

His introduction to the still-lovely “Come Monday” includes a story of when, in his rookie year, he performed a show at the Bistro on West Peachtree Street and “no one came true.”

The eternal singalong “Cheeseburger in Paradise” was preceded by Buffett, 67, and said, “In my early days, my only Krystal burgers were and The Varsity.”

Local undoubtedly appreciated hearing praise Buffett Zac Brown Band in Atlanta before covering swinging “Knee Deep” (which Buffett appeared on record) of the band; later, Buffett reeled PBC combo of “Free” and Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic” popularized by the pair of “CMT Crossroads” (PBC launched its own summer tour this weekend, so a sighting would not be alive).

Adding connections to Atlanta, one of the choristers of all life is Nadirah Shakoor Buffett, Atlanta native and former member of Arrested Development.

The other secret weapon in the side ace Buffett, who is so able to add a nice coating accordion “Went to Paris” as easily as the injection of electric guitar in the “soul rockin” The Pascagoula Run”, is the guitarist Mac McAnally, six times the deserved winner of Musician of the Year Country Music Association.

The booming sound guitarist held the crowd – a notoriously chatty bunch and distracted Chastain -. “Too Drunk to Karaoke” enthralled with his playing in The Allman Brothers “Little Martha” and fill in the part of Toby Keith

During the two-hour concert-plus, Buffett included only a couple of selections from “Songs From St. Somewhere” album last year – his release 27 and apparently the reason for this tour, called “This One For You . “

But everyone knows that Buffett does not need a new album to support a tour. Some grass skirts and mixing alcohol and another trip to “Margaritaville” is all I ever needed.

Everything depends on you, Jimmy; you want to do the interview now?

” So I got a C or D. That’s good. That was my normal rating in college. “

Allen Toussaint Brings Hit Parade To New Orleans Jazz Fest, With An Assist From Jimmy Buffett

Pianist Allen Toussaint, right, singer Jimmy Buffett thanks after he joined him at the Acura stage for a few songs at the New Orleans Jazz Fest in New Orleans on Saturday, May 3, 2014


Allen Toussaint played songs spanning over half a century in the Acura Stage Saturday afternoon New Orleans Jazz Fest.

The hit parade was an autobiography in the song, but like the whole race Toussaint surveyed, the show was not all about him.

An important aspect was ” Sally Sneakin ‘ Through the Alley , “ the original Toussaint Robert Palmer took as the title track pop -funk of their debut in 1974 , and was followed by “Two Trains” , another song Toussaint party – nice popularized by someone other than him, in his case, Little Feat .

Shortly after Toussaint called Jimmy Buffett on stage to sing lead on two songs: “Fortune Teller” (you can determine the version of Benny Spellman, or maybe Robert Plant and Alison Krauss) and “Wave Bye Bye”, the tender Jesse Winchester ballad dense crowd earlier in the day (many obviously homesteading Bruce Springsteen, who plays the same later stage) to sway in unison moved.

This is what the concerts are Toussaint machines dimensional discs once , orchestrated by a consummate professional , whose work as composer, producer and performing artist is purely New Orleans, just scrubbed free of anything that sounds remotely thick .

Which is not to say bland Toussaint? Their stage attire mixed plaid , paisley and polka dots as anyone, and his band – take shape with horns and backup singers , so that corresponds to a first-rate arranger and band leader – cleverly designed set down several times tried slots loins .

“Soul Sister” – which “with hip boots bad” – began as reggae, but became somewhat thicker, culminating in a nasty solo by guitarist Renard Poche. Toussaint Packaging another of his successes in medleys:

“Mother -in -Law”, the Toussaint composition immortalized by Ernie K -Doe, was sandwiched between” Everything I do Gonh Be Funky “and “working in a coal mine,” both hits for Lee Dorsey in 1960.

The crowd cheered in collective recognition of the opening notes to “Southern Nights”, the set- closer, during which Toussaint presented to all members of his band. He allowed them each more than a moment of fame alone, and then walked away from his piano to the promise. “See you next year”
